Essential Oil of the Month-
November: Thyme


Thyme (Thymus vulgaris) has a spicy, warm, herbaceous aroma that is both powerful and penetrating. Known since ancient times as a medicinal herb, Thyme is anti-aging, highly antimicrobial, antiviral, and anti-parasitic. 

Thyme contains large amounts of Thymol, which has been studied for its effect on gingivitis and plaque-causing organisms in the mouth. As a dietary supplement, it is one of the strongest antioxidants known. 

Thyme supports the immune, respiratory, digestive, nervous, and other body systems. It may also be beneficial in helping to overcome fatigue and exhaustion, especially when recovering from illness.

  2. I went to school for 10 years! :)
    I am fascinated by natural healing. I love growing herbs, making medicine, helping others to discover how great they feel when they take charge of their own health. :)

  3. The result was a significant improvement in skin texture (a measurable decrease in roughness), as well as a reduction in the appearance of fine lines. To benefit from the oil this way, you could add 4 to 12 drops per ounce to a cream or lotion you're already using, or if making up a new formula, use the essential oil at a concentration between .5% and 2%.diffuser
